As I entered the Ono City History Museum right in front of Ono City Hall, I was surprised to see the model of the good western style sailing ship displayed despite a mountain town. You will find that the Ono Domain sold local products to rebuild its economy at the end of Edo Period and they planned to reclaim present-day Hokkaido and Sakhalin.
